SkyPatch double coated ripstop nylon 

The name SkyPatch says it all; this fabric is extremely suitable for sport and foil kites. Due to the properties of this coated 40D ripstop nylon fabric, it is also an excellent choice for many other applications.

SkyPatch is designed as a ripstop nylon fabric for kite sports, where characteristics such as durability, porosity, and flexibility are essential. It is precisely these features that make SkyPatch an excellent choice for kite sports.

One of the striking features of SkyPatch is its exceptional durability. SkyPatch is designed to withstand the hardships of prolonged use and exposure to the elements, showing remarkable resistance to tearing, abrasion, and UV degradation. This results in a long lifespan, allowing kite enthusiasts to enjoy many hours of flying without worrying about premature wear.

The double-sided polyurethane (PU) coating of the 40D nylon provides an ultra-smooth, exceptionally airtight surface and prevents water absorption. This means that SkyPatch's performance remains stable, even in light winds and rainy conditions.

Optimal porosity is essential for achieving efficient airflow over the surface of a kite. This ensures that lift and stability are maximized. SkyPatch is carefully designed to find the perfect balance between porosity and aerodynamic performance, ensuring consistent and predictable flying characteristics in all weather and wind conditions.

SkyPatch is remarkably flexible despite the robust construction of high-quality synthetic fibers and tight weaving. This allows kites to respond agilely and accurately to the subtlest changes in wind direction and speed. This flexibility is crucial for performing complex maneuvers and stunts. Thus, kite flyers can confidently push the boundaries of performance.

The versatility and reliability of SkyPatch make it highly suitable for various types of kites but also for other applications. SkyPatch fabric delivers consistent performance and durability.

Weighing in at 51 grams per square meter, SkyPatch achieves an ideal equilibrium between durability, dependability, and weight. This renders SkyPatch well-suited for many applications where weight is not the primary consideration.

Air permeability refers to a fabric's capacity to permit air to flow through it. SkyPatch boasts an impressively low air permeability rate of 0.04 cc per cm² per second*, indicating its exceptional airtightness. This attribute is crucial for kite manufacturing, ensuring optimal performance in various conditions. *The air permeability measurement quantifies the volume of air passing through a surface unit within a specified time frame. This value is determined under a pressure differential of 1 atmosphere, considering a specific fabric thickness.

SkyPatch offers slightly greater stretchability compared to fabrics like Chikara and Icarex. This characteristic facilitates easy deployment of SkyPatch, allowing it to conform to various product designs while maintaining a natural and smooth appearance. Careful measures have been implemented to prevent excessive stretching, ensuring that products made with SkyPatch retain their shape over extended periods.

SkyPatch boasts exceptional tear strength, making it an incredibly robust fabric that resists wear and tear. This durability ensures that Skypatch maintains its performance over an extended period, ensuring longevity and consistent quality throughout its lifespan.

Many nylon fabrics are attacked by ultraviolet radiation and may crack or disintegrate if they are not UV-stable. This is a problem known as UV degradation, and is common in products exposed to sunlight. SkyPatch has good UV resistance. 

SkyPatch is coated with polyurethane (PU) on both sides, providing an extremely smooth pleasant and soft texture. This facilitates very easy handling of the fabric and allows it to conform to various product designs while maintaining a natural and smooth appearance. The coating enhances the fabric's aging resistance, ensuring it retains a nice and smooth look even after prolonged use. SkyPatch also maintains its shape, color, and features effectively, guaranteeing sustained performance over an extended period.
